This is the development version of MetaVolcanoR; to use it, please install the devel version of Bioconductor.

Gene expression meta-analysis visualization tool

Bioconductor version: Development (3.10)

This package combines differential gene expression results. It implements three strategies to summarize gene expression activities from different studies. i) a naive vote-counting approach, ii) a combining-approach and iii) Random Effects Model (REM) approach. In all cases, MetaVolcano exploits the Volcano plot reasoning to visualize the gene expression meta-analysis results.
